Printing is available at a charge, please discuss with the downstairs reception desk for current costs before printing. We cannot usually allow larger print jobs (over 20 pages) without prior arrangement.
You can also hire our computer suite for exclusive use on a chargeable basis (eg to run a class) for a cost of £20/hour. There is a UHD TV (with internet connectivity) in the room for those wanting to run classes with presentations.
IMPORTANT: Our computers include specialist software which resets them once a session is over. This means that data and files cannot be stored on the PC drives between restarts, but can be copied to a USB drive or SD card to take away before restarting the PC. (Inexpensive USB pendrives will be available for sale at the reception desk if needed.)
